LUCA CONNELL PREVIEWS BOLTON TRIP

13 October 2022

The midfielder looked ahead to Saturday's trip to his former club for the assembled press.

ON DONCASTER ROVERS VICTORY

"It was good. It was my first time being one of the older lads! 

"It was a game of two halves, really. The first half, we bossed it and we were the better team. But then, second half they brought on some older players and more experienced players. It was good for myself and the even younger lads to get that experience. It was a good game.

"The games are coming thick and fast, we've got a young team. It's good to have that experience under our belts already."

ON FABIO JALO

"Yeah, he's been brilliant. Every time he's been up with the first team training he's been doing well and it seems like he's got a good attitude. He just needs to keep his head down and I'm sure he can go a long way."

ON HIS START TO THE SEASON

"It's been good. It was good to just get another run of games, I feel like I needed that now and at this level it's good to be playing week in, week out.

"Obviously, there's great competition in the midfield now so it's not going to be as easy as going straight back in. You've just got to bide your time, train well and hopefully get back in."

ON LUKE THOMAS

"It's not good to see. He was such an important part of the team, but he's such a good lad. He'll still be a part of the team off the pitch. He'll still motivate us to do it for him as well, but definitely gutted for him. I'm sure he'll come back better than ever."

ON RETURNING TO BOLTON WANDERERS 

"I'm looking forward to it, I'm excited. I think there's still a couple of old faces there that I'll get to see. 

"When I left the club, it wasn't in the best of positions. Thankfully, they've turned that around now. A lot of the staff have changed, but funny enough, the lad I did my scholar with, he's the kit-man now! It'll be good to go back and see him."
